ETERNAL CHAMPIONS: CHALLENGE FROM THE DARK SIDE
Mega CD Pal | 1995
This is a far superior version to that released on the Mega Drive. It also ranks as an
excellent example as to how the system should be used for making excellent
games. Unfortunately the game was highly overlooked.
The Eternal Champion has snatched warriors from different places and times before
their untimely deaths. They have all been entered into a tournament to fight to
save the world. Eternal Champion is unaware of the 4 warriors from the Dark Side
the Dark Eternal Champion has been hiding as well as the 4 he hides himself.
Upgrades from the Mega Drive version include double the amount of playable
characters, new special moves, a new combo system, some nasty fatalities, more
game modes and more including a slew of options for 2-player mode.
There are 13 characters to play and 14 unlockable with some being not so human.
An example being the formidable Crispy the Chicken!
The graphics are top-notch for the system and the sound track is quite good. It has
good lastability as the AI can be quite challenging.
This was one of the later Mega CD games to be released and comes with a 15
certificate no doubt due to the intricate and sometimes amusing fatalities.
